• Can you help us to find and preserve Hull's film heritage?

    Film Search Hull is our new campaign to find and preserve Hull's film heritage, creating a lasting legacy that can be seen and enjoyed by people now and for generations to come. Do you know of any film or video collections that are buried in the backs of cupboards, or hidden away in attics?  If so, we'd love to hear from you.

    Take a look at our trailer to find out more, and watch some fantastic archive footage of Hull.
